Like all Smog albums, "Red Apple Falls" is good.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 12th February 2015

Like all Smog albums, "Red Apple Falls" is good. I've always found it to be Bill Callahan's most Nick Drake-ish album, it's not that much like Nick Drake, but the opening track "The Morning Paper" could almost be on "Five Leaves left" or "Pink Moon" - but a more wonky version of either. Like lots of good albums, this was recorded by Jim O'Rourke who does his best Joe Boyd impression on "The Morning Paper" too, in terms of production. "Blood Red Bird" is standard Callahan, but great nevertheless. "I Was A Stranger" is reminiscent of Pavement's fine country moment "Father To A Sister of Thought" - an emotive pedal steel glides through the song in a similar way. "Ex Con" is a brass-led, musically upbeat song with typical Bill Callahan lyrics "Whenever I get dressed up, I feel like an ex-con trying to make good". Cat Power covered the beautiful slower than slow ballad "Red Apples" on her first covers record, so what more of a recommendation do you need?
